As part of our ongoing sewer relining project, we’re currently refurbishing ageing wastewater pipes in Jolimont. This work is being undertaken by our authorised contractor, Interflow.
Sewer relining uses trenchless technology to clean access chambers and refurbish existing wastewater pipes. Trenchless technology is less invasive and requires fewer trenches resulting in less disruption to the community.
Where is this happening?
We will work on the wastewater pipe along the following streets in Jolimont:
- Hart Lane, Jersey Street, Rosebery Street and other laneways in the area
See the Project maps tab for detailed overviews.
Why is this work taking place?
Relining wastewater pipes is an important process to protect our wastewater systems and the health of the community and environment. This work will reduce the likelihood of blockages, prevent corrosion and extend the life of this important infrastructure by at least 50 years.
When is this happening?
Work commenced Monday 14 October 2019 and will take approximately 6 week to complete. During this period working hours will be Monday to Saturday between 7.00am and 5.00pm.
We will generally be in one area for six days at a time and then move along the wastewater route
How will this impact the community?
Residents may notice more activity in the area, noise from generators, vehicles and a temporary odour. We work closely with residents throughout the duration of the project to minimise the inconvenience to the local community wherever possible.
As part of this work, Interflow will also replace ageing property gas traps and access chamber covers. If access to your property is required the contractor, Interflow, will contact you directly to discuss and arrange entry.
Where required, traffic management will be in place to direct people safely around the work area.
